    My husband and daughter (2 1/2) and I are planning a WDW trip for the end of February 2010. We are debating between the Coronodo, Carribean, and the Orleans hotels. I am unsure which one to book because of distances to the different parks and amenities.

    Hi Kristen - I think it really depends on what specifically you are looking for.  I really love the Port Orleans French Quarter resort if you want a quaint, lower key resort.  It's easily walkable, and you can even walk to the Riverside section for access to all of those amenities.  I also really love the food courts at both French Quarter and Riverside.

    However, if you'd like to stay at a larger resort, Coronado Springs is really beautiful, and the rooms are fabulous.  They have queen beds and flat screen TVs, and have been recently renovated.  The downside is that the resort is really large, so you'd have a long walk to get to the pool or to the lobby.

    As for distance to the parks, in my opinion, there really isn't enough of a difference to be a factor. 

    I hope that helps!
